Bump H>ong 

Dorothy Staples, '23 Tune, "Solomon Levi" 

Mount Holyoke has its campus, 
And Wellesley has its lake, 
And Smith has all the beauties 
That art and cash can make; 
But, thinking of their splendours, 
Do not let your spirits slump, 
For our Simmons has its famous, 
Fetching, fascinating Dump. 

We grope thro' clouds of blinding dust; 

We bump into a cow, 

Beneath the sun's most scorching rays 

Our heads we limply bow ; 

There's not a single shade-tree 

Nor the vestige of a stump ; 

Yet we love our dirty, dusty, 

Dingy, undulating Dump. 

They talk of dang'rous journeys 
In the frigid Arctic lands, 
But we face all the perils of 
Those brave exploring bands ; 
We beat our way thro' icy gales ; 
O'er snowy drifts we jump; 
Even then thro' frozen lips we sigh, 
"We love our College Dump." 

Anon, perchance, you meet a chum 
From some more ancient school ; 
She tells you of their shaded lawns, 
Their courts and swimming pool ; 
And then you sweetly say, unless 
You are an awful frump — 
"But, my dear, I wouldn't swap them all 
For our good ole Simmons Dump."

Ruth Adams 

Ruth is one of those charming young ladies who never seem to 
study and yet manage to pass every exam successfully, if not "magna 
cum laude." Ruth has other more important things to take up her 
time than mere studies, such as telephone calls, clothes, cigarettes, 
dates, etc. Her movements are leisurely, unhurried. Nothing can 
ruffle her calm serenity but excessive noise — quietude is one of her 
dearest hobbies. Cheer up, Ruth. Who knows but the whole world 
may some day be stricken dumb.

To mere acquaintances Louise is one of our most capable and 
brilliant members, and to her friends her everready sympathy and 
quick wit make her a source of inspiration. With all her own varied 
activities, she always finds time for the interests of those around her. 
No one else can ever fill the place she holds in the hearts of her

Janice Allardice 

Jay is one of our gayer classmates. She's always ready for a good 
time and you can always be sure that she'll be a peach of a sport about 
everything. Jay has caused South Hall much worry all the year, due 
to its attempt to card-catalogue her many admirers. In short, we 
don't see much of her of an evening. And then often we hear her 
rattling a Remington and preaching Commercial Law and we are 
forced to the realization that we have a secretary in our midst.

"Freddie is the epitome of the unexpected. When her chin reaches

picture her a children's librarian a few years from now answering the

Her policy is "first comes work and then comes play," for al-

unbroken record for going home every week end of the four years.

Thelma Andrews 

"Shelly" is that demure, illusive one who can listen to jokes, and 
laugh till the tears flow. She likes and dislikes with decided emphasis. 
She hates to be called "a plump little girl ;" she loves prunes, and 
good orchestras. 

At Simmons, she has learned many things : — to be a first rate 
secretary, not to be disillusioned by mannish fur coats, to remember 
license plate numbers, and to appreciate poetry.

Vi has that rare quality of being able to bring order out of the 
most hopeless chaos. Many are the messes that less systematic and 
efficient members of the Mic Board have dumped despairingly on her 
desk and then returned to find them all neatly straightened out, in- 
telligibly arranged. The fame of her business ability has reached 
beyond the narrow confines of Simmons and one of our prouder mo- 
ments was that in which we and the Governor of the Green Mountain 
State conversed intimately about her virtues as a secretary.

Running Musical Association and keeping the morals of Longwood

that all these multitudinous duties are sufficient explanation for her 
recent case of absent-minedmss.

Margaret's name will be writ large in the pages of our class his- 
tory for her ability to write letters for Miss Wilson, which were not 
only read in class to show the rest of us how it should be done, but 
were returned with a minimum of the customary red fringe. 

Also, there is nothing wrong with Margaret's neural system. She 
sits there calmly seeping in the pearls of wisdom dropping from the 
lips of her instructors, and then when she is called upon, can hand it 
back again concisely and promptly !

Mildred Barney 

We of the Mic Board feel a peculiar kinship to Mike, since from 
our psych we learn that sympathy comes from a similarity of experi- 
ence, and so our hearts certainly go out to her when we see her strug- 
gling with the accounts of Student Government. But her Academy 
record assures us of her success, and we offer up our homage as we 
make haste to hibernate, unwept, unhonored, and unsung.

something that will stump Modene! She has an ever-ready answer — 
and what's more, it's always to the point. Her room is a gathering 
place for discussion on anything from shorthand to the double standard. 
In brief, if you want information, or an interesting chat, hail a 
green-clad figure bustling about South Hall and you may be sure of 
getting just what you are seeking.

who has received a black eye from a collision with her, would never 
suspect that she is a full-fledged, dignified schoolma'am with two 
whole years of experience behind her. Just to prove it, visit her settle- 
ment class some night and see how she makes her pupils toe the mark. 
Phyllis has her hobby — winter sports — and she rides it hard ; but 
whether she is snow-shoeing or making fudge for the bunch on fourth 
floor North, she is the same good sport.

Mary, better known as Peter, is one of the most attractive and

School. The extraordinary thing about this is not the fact that she 
changed schools but that she did so well in both of them. Mary's 
influence and the weight her opinions carry are shown by the respon- 
sible offices she has held. She is one of the most respected, best liked, 
and most charming girls in college.

Ethel is one of those quiet girls with big brown eyes, at least 
that is her outward appearance. It has been reported however, by 
those who know, that she sometimes tears her hair desperately in 
typewriting class, and she can become quite eloquent on such subjects 
as her "favorite English Prof." She is training to be a secretary, 
but we believe she should have taken Household Ec to fit her for her 
life work.

To the casual observer, she seems very quiet and reserved, but Third

dote to its so-called Senior dignity.

Helen is a loyal friend to those who know her well. She is not 
easy to become acquainted with, but the results are more than worth 
the effort. She is Hilda's right-hand man whenever and wherever 
there is a play going: on. Helen, attired in overalls, is always to be-

We don't know whether it is Campus' vast knowledge of music or

think the Sec. Department ought to know about Campus' poise. She 
didn't even move when the Sophomores at Ghost Walk poured a 
pitcher of water on her.

Glance at the picture before you say you don't know Margaret, 
for if you look behind the disguise of the name, you will find that 
this is our little friend Margo. From the rate at which she walks, 
you know she comes from the wide open spaces of the West, and 
doubtless acquired this speedy gait from the training of five brothers. 
Her readiness to give attention to everyone's telephone calls is an 
indication of her genial spirit. Her romantic nature has not been 
subdued by the demands of the condensed secretarial course into which 
she was thrown last year after two years in an academic college.

that a bookshop is her chief end in life, but somehow, when we picture 
her giving out the latest in fiction to the intellectually curious, we 
have to smile because fraternity pins and specials are rather suspicious 
bits of evidence after all.

Miriam Colodny 

"Oh, isn't that just precious!" What is? It doesn't matter for 
Miriam is in love with everything — except Accounts. Many are the 
times Miriam's plaintive wail of "Done your accounts?" has caused 
the milk of human kindness to flow in our veins to the extent of 
joining this little person in her hunt for the nickel necessary to 
restore the equilibrium of her trial balance. What little time remains 
after this nerve racking feat has been accomplished, Miriam devotes 
to mastering the intricacies of the Charleston. Despite the dampen- 
ing effect of her room-mate's remark "you ought to sse Adeline" we 
who saw her in the Pony Chorus know that when it comes to dancing 
Miriam can do just about anything.

She is always ready to explain everything to everybody. The in- 
formation simply doesn't exist if Margaret can't give it to you or tell 
you how to find it. She will mention the best hotel in Honolulu with 
all the sangfroid of giving directions to South Station. You will learn 
also that Hawaii's about the most enchanting place on earth. 

Some say that Margaret lives in Boston and goes to work in New 
York and it's just about correct. It's no wonder you've got the travel 
habit, Margaret. We can easily imagine you starting on your way to- 
make a tour of the world. Good luck !

Lucetta Cook 

People like Cooky who have had the advantage of having been to

We were glad to hear about Iowa and get acquainted with Grinnel 
and Ames. 

Cooky is the one to whom we rush when we want our evening 
dresses renovated or a bunch of flowers arranged in the latest mode. 
Since we have discovered her fondness for candy and magazines, we 
know that our pangs of hunger, mental as well as physical, will be 
assuaged, if we go into her room. Furthermore, despite our ravages,, 
we have always found ourselves heartily welcomed.

really is just as busy as she appears. Hardly a day goes by without 
a "special," a box of candy, or flowers from the "one big interest." 
We wish you all kinds of happiness, Crossie, and hope that the orange 
blossoms will be more than lovely in Florida !

else would take half the pains Billie does. Perhaps that is the reason

Helen is to be a social worker and we know she'll be a good one. 
Because of her keen interst and sympathy for her clients, we know 
they will be well taken care of, especially in the matter of wearing 
rubbers. The thing we would like to know is, where Helen conceals 
her rubbers during the sunny hours, for at the first drop of rain, no 
matter where she is, she produces the useful little articles.

Well, Nettie, "what kap ya ? Did you come in a buggy?" Some

granite hearts, but they don't know Nettie. No one can help but be 
happy when she is around with her "new exercise" and copyrighted 
laugh. And capable ! She can do anything from operating on gold- 
fish to exquisite embroidery.

Pep ! Down goes the telephone receiver, clatter, clatter, clatter

Ruth is the efficient little person with a boyish haircut whom you 
see around 318 in her business hours. In her lighter moments she 
shows a decided fondness for drama, French novels and giddy stock- 
ings, while most of her spare pennies are spent dissipating in Schvafts.

Helen is our Lady Godiva — she of the long, fair hair. The Fates 
have not been very kind to Helen, for they have given her more than 
her share of misfortune, but she has risen above them all by her

Bent as with John Simmons and we hope that her intimacy with the 
former will not be renewed, while with the latter it will remain fixed 
and constant throughout the years.

For a long time Keithy managed to fool us with her dignified

ditional senior — but now that we've seen her at Senior House Warming 
we are completely disillusioned. You can always depend on her to 
perform the helpful art of sewing on buttons or chasing up a clean 
pair of stockings to ease the strain of those feverish activities caused 
by the frequent shouts of "caller" which are wafted up to third floor 
from below.

gions of the laundry at which the fate of the college and country was 
settled to Betty's and our entire satisfaction. The supreme example, 
however, of her fluency as a conversationalist was the time when slu' 
kept two telephone lines dangling simultaneously.

showed us how to conquer all the chemistries and biologies in the 
Science School. She came with a knowledge of men, women, and the 
art of wearing clothes ; a love of Reymer's chocolates and 'coonskin 
coats, a splendid disposition and an adorable dignity.

We are never exasperated with her because of this trait, however, 
because "Oliie" has never been known to commit the error of calling 
attention to the fact that while her theme is done, yours isn't. She 
helps you. Thereby giving additional proof of the fact that there 
isn't any justice.

our efficient Betsy no matter whether she hurries to class, to church,

explain this psychological change.

less critic ! Her candid declarations quite dismay most of our plastic 
collegians. Boston as well as her classmates assuredly appreciates her ; 
were there not special rooms built for her in the new Metropolitan 
Theatre? Her friends recognize the good sport she is: from mouse- 
hunting at 1 A. M. at 48 Hai'rison Street to rooming with The Other

few equals. Falling upstairs and down and in the middle of a smooth 
corridor, is her greatest accomplishment. But her repertoire is not 
so limited. She can "trip the light fantastic toe" with ease and skill. 
And she can discuss with much learned experience the vagaries of 
men and the psychology of the poor "woiking goil."

struction from Floi-ence on the art of the drama, and a certain amount 
of aid from Izzy on the technique of the "uke." So when her pupils 
(somewhere east of the Mississippi) get tired of the monotony of 
shorthand. Hazel can invite them to tea at her apartment and tell 
them of the dramatic and musical life of Boston.

Helen was on the stage and actresses must rest sometimes. She could

not to mention the trouble of lugging them to and from classes?

Was it to fit her to become assistant to "The Buyer?"

substitute in Hilda's latest hobby. First it was exercises performed 
in the halls to the great joy of the girls and the equally great distress 
of Miss Thatcher. Now, however, we have a greater problem — we 
cannot decide whether it is the joy of beholding "rosy-fingered dawn 
tint the purple hills", or that of feasting her soul on the music 
of the puffing, belching steam engine that has caused Hilda to desert 
the dorms. At any rate, although there is less rancus hilarity about, 
we miss her explosive giggle !

This year she departed from her custom and got a taste of dormitory

was not favorably impressed for she catalogued it a "den of iniquity" 
and could not find the atmosphere of quiet necessary to concentrate 
on her extensive library. 

Never mind, we liked her company even if she didn't like ours

You all know that old theory, "the smaller the body, the greater

always find time to do something else. Like a certain well-known 
insect, she is persistent and untiring, and hard to locate because of 
her smallness and agile celerity. Her activities range from news re- 
porting to dietetics ; her discussions from religion to free love, from 
H. G. Wells to Elinor Glynn. Her greatest ambition is to attain a 
height of 6 feet 3 and a corresponding leanness. Her greatest achieve- 
ment thus far has been losing her fountain pen six times a day in as 
many different places.

Cordelia Titcomb 

Considering the fact that she began her career at Simmons by be- 
ing late' to her first class and falling through a chair in the lunch 
room, Codie has turned out quite respectably. Indeed, if she follows 
her inclinations, we think she may yet be a very respectable labor

Augusta Tolman 

Once a month in stentorian accents, Gus' shout of "Got anything 
decent for the Review?" is heard echoing through the halls as she 
tries to corral all available works of art. Somehow we never get 
worried over the fate of the Review when we hear this plaintive wail, 
because we know that if she can't find anything fit for publication, 
Gus can write it herself, whether it be prose or poetry.

May Toner 

When you hear of Tony you have to think hard to remember 
whether she is a dorm girl or a commuter, so consistently has she en- 
tered into all our activities. A mere detail like distance never keeps 
Tony from helping with any plot that is being brewed by the "powers 
that be." 

Be it further said, that Tony's habit of keeping open house has 
added a great deal to her friends' joy and has thereby increased the 
well-known Monday gloom.

Catherine Tower 

"Kay's" from Lexington — that's why she's often a last minute man 
for assembly. We're glad she's from Lexington, since it has meant 
some wonderful times for us at her home. Another awful disclosure 
— -have you noticed how lonesome she is for German this year? She 
actually likes it !

Agatha Wade 

Twinkling eyes and a rare sense of humor tell a great deal about 
Agatha even though she does try to conceal herself behind her glasses. 
We have all come to know of her kind-heartednss, and for a combina- 
tion of practicality and generosity, she just can't be equalled. We 
know, too, that she was the shining star of a certain Ethics class, and 
so if you have any "moral problems," go to Agatha.

Dorothy Warbasse 

Thoughtfulness and generosity personified — that is Dot. She is 
happiest when doing something for others, and she would give her 
last dollar to make some one else happy — a most unusual trait in this 
age. Her motto is not "Do. one good deed a day,'* for she does count- 
less kind acts every day. People go to her for advice and they get 
it, good sound advice. Dot has a mind of her own, but it's a broad one, 
for a' that.

We all know well that Dot is going to make some man a perfect 
secretary. But it won't be entirely because of her accuracy, business 
ability and courteousness, those prosaic a-b-c's of efficiency, though it 
is amazing what a supply of these is stored in her little head.

We can be grateful to B. U. for once, and that's for giving us 
Tony White. She hasn't been here long, but long enough for us to 
find out what a good sport we were missing before she came. Rather 
quiet, and reserved, but watch her on the tennis court and the rink!

Christine White 

Chris is one of the best reasons we know of for a permanent resi- 
dence in Troy. Those famous attributes of disposition and sympathy 
are hers, as also a well-stocked medicine chest. If in mental or bodily 
anguish, run to Chris — she has a ready ear and sugar coated pills. As 
a schoolmarm she will be incomparable, for her stock in hand are the 
three "R's", a good line of jokes, and a first aid kit.

Here's one person from Michigan whose finger prints are not on file 
in the Antiquarium Society I On the contrary, she is one of the few 
lucky members of our sex whose brains and philosophical views do 
not limit her social activities. Furthermore, an absolutely irrefutable 
proof of her popularity among her classmates, is the fact that her 
numerous telephone calls never bring forth that cynical and expres- 
sive — "Oh, well — ". Here's to the Misleading Lady of Mic Show!

Mildred Whitworth 


Ever since we have been in Mildred's typewriting class, we have 
had a sinister suspicion that she is responsible for the high standard 
set for it which we struggle vainly to attain. She has that rare 
trait of intellectual curiosity which enables her to bear her share of 
the responsibility of settling the ills of the universe. Unlike many 
theorists, Mildred takes cognizance of the practical side of life. Al- 
though nothing less than a fire drill rouses the rest of us, it is ru- 
mored that Mildred has made several nocturnal pilgrimages to the 
South door. One needs no further proof of her accommodating spirit.

One sunny day in September, 1922, Billie blew into Simmons and 
here she has remained, unscathed by the ravages of time and the sec- 
retarial department. Billie is one of those people who is continually 
cropping up in unexpected places, and whom you are always glad to see, 
regardless of how surprised you may be. Think this over carefully, 
Billie, because it's a compliment which comes from way down in our 
boots and we want you to get it in its fullest significance.

Where would we find another such all-round, good sport as Pete? 
Although she does not live in the dorms, commuting never keeps her 
from any kind of meetings or athletics. Most of the day she spends in 
the Chem. Lab., but she leaves her test-tubes and smock long enough to 
win a hockey cup, plan games and attend an Academy meeting occa-

Sally is one of the people in the class whose character tempts the 
writer to employ the well-known yearbook style designated as "soft 
soap" by the victim's enemies, and as "simple justice" by her friends. 
Both '26 and '28 like Sally a lot, and particularly those house Juniors 
who established the motor habit of congregating in her room, which 
habit, we blushingly admit, once caused a despairing "Sh" to issue 
from our distracted neighbors and even from the outlying districts

Always smiling — that's "Gig". Has something just gone wrong ? 
Go to "Gig", she'll find something: for you to laugh at. Then, too.,.

can always be depended upon to take part in your fun and to be there

Our good Betsy is right there when it comes to parties (from

striving to amuse the hoi polloi. Betsy is a pillar of the house of 
fun and frolic, a staunch and loyal member of the great order of the 
S. O. S-, and an intelligent student. May her soul rest in peace!

Emily Wright 

"Emptie" as she is sometimes called by those daring to make the 
allusion, is one of the Library School, who is always ready to see the 
humorous side of a situation, and one who has a witty remark to 
make at a moment's notice. In her happy-go-lucky way she accom- 
plishes her scholastic duties, but always finds time on the side to have 
her fun and to keep posted on the time of the arrival of the B. & M.

Breathless and cheeks flaming, this small person rushes in all 
smiles. "Had you been waiting long? It poured and we had two flat 
tires. I forgot the keys, so I had to disconnect the distributor. But 
it's not very late, is it?" And once more we smile politely and for- 
get that we have all been nervous wrecks for an hour for fear she 
wouldn't come at all.

Something seems wrong? It certainly does, for here is Fritz with- 
out Mary — and you never see one without the other. No wonder they 
are so inseparable, for Fritz, through her numerous art courses, repre- 
sents the artistic side of life, while Mary, because of her business ef- 
ficiency, represents the practical.

Ruth loves to dance (her feet are quite distinctive, by the way) and 
has a contagious smile. Her one failing seems to be tea — unless it's 
coffee — and we have seen her eat ice-cream — a gallon or two {not 
all at once !) 

Ruthie never lets a little thing like sleep stand in the way of read- 
ing a novel, even at three o'clock in the morning.

Haigouhy Zovickian 

The proverbial little bird told us that Haigouhy has a rare quality, 
a thirst for knowledge of all the "ologies." Those of us whose shining 
lights were nearly extinguished Freshman year by said science courses 
can fully appreciate what this means. 

This same little bird informed us that Haigouhy has another at- 
tribute, also uncommon among us, that of an orderly mind. 

In addition, she cannot be classed in that large species found in 
all dormitories, and earmarked by its habit of playing the Victrola 
at 7 a. m. on Sunday, for she is very thoughtful of others.

We believe in Student Government here at Simmons, and because we 
believe in it we want to see it grow and succeed. If student Government 
is to reach the fullest and best usefulness, then let each Simmons girl feel 
a sense of responsibility in regard to its affairs and a willingness to devote 
time and thought to its problems. 

Opportunity for the individual to express opinions, make suggestions, 
or request definite action to be taken by Student Government, is provided 
in three important parts of our system : first, the class representatives on 
Student Government Council ; second, the group meetings ; and third, the 
newly adopted open meetings. Every one has a chance to make known 
what she wants done or thinks ought to be done. It is a chance worth tak- 

We have many demands upon our time ; it sometimes seems impos- 
sible to attend to them all — but if we say we are too busy to take an active 
interest in Student Government, are we not really saying that we are too 
busy to attend to an essential phase of college life? It would seem very 
much worth while for each Simmons girl to prepare herself for future 
citizenship by showing a vital, active interest in Student Government 
while she is in college.

Chairman ........ Albertine Parker 

Secretary ........ Dorothy Warbasse 

Since the creation of our new Judicial Board, Dormitory Committee 
has become purely a legislative body. It is composed of the Freshmen 
House Seniors and the House Chairmen. 

The Committee has devoted itself to testing the soundness of the rules 
in order to evolve a set of regulations which will more accurately fit the 
changing conditions of dormitory life. 

This board acts as a connecting link between the student body and the 
Student Government Council, thereby bringing the girls into closer con- 
tact with the functions of this body.

Before any of the recommendations of the Student Committees can 
become laws, they must be approved by the Student Government Confer- 
ence Committee. This Committee is composed of four members of the 
Faculty and three students. To maintain the balance of power between 
the Faculty and students the Chairman exercises her right to vote only in 
the event of a tie. 

By giving Student Government the benefit of their greater experience 
and more mature opinions, the members of this Committee act as a check 
upon our youthful eagerness to keep abreast of the times.

This year there has been a merging of the old Honor Board and the 
judicial powers of the Dormitory Committee into what is known as the 
Judicial Board, which is composed of nine members. The Chairman is a 
Senior chosen by the student body. The other representatives are the 
four class presidents, a Junior and a Sophomore from Student Council, and 
the President and Vice-President of Student Government, ex officio. 

The Board acts on all cases, whether academic or dormitory, and 
passes its recommendations to the Conference Committee or to the Ad- 
ministrative Board. 

It is hoped that this standardization of the Judicial powers of Student 
Government will create greater interest in the problems of Student Govern-

The Academy of 1926 numbers thirteen undergraduate members — an- 
other proof that thirteen is a lucky number, for our fellowship this year 
has proved both a pleasure and a benefit. We are greatly indebted to the 
enthusiastic alumnae who have so generously given their encouragement 
and guidance throughout the year. From their longer experience they 
have interpreted to us the true meaning of the Academy. We are particu- 
larly fortunate in our nine Honorary Members who, through their loyal 
support, have been a constant source of inspiration. The Academy this 
year was very glad to receive Dean Mesick as an Honorary Member. 

As an evidence of the year's activity, several books have been added 
to the collection previously placed in the college library by the Academy. 
Five of these volumes are the gift of Miss Morse, one of our most helpful 
and esteemed Honorary Members. 

It has been our aim this year to bring the ideals of Academy before 
the college as a whole, in the endeavor to inspire a more general apprecia- 
tion of classical subjects. In a college such as Simmons, where the ten- 
dency is to emphasize technical subjects only, a society of this kind fills a 
definite need. The ideal of Academy finds expression in its symbol, the 
torch of learning. It is the special duty and privilege of those who bear 
the symbol to keep the torch in constant flame at Simmons.

Y. W. has striven this year to make the Association one that will at- 
tract a greater number of students. Its purpose was to encourage prog- 
ressive thinking in religion and ethics, and in the political problems that 
influence our social surroundings ; to expand the cooperation between the 
dormitory and commuting students so that our College will be more unified; 
to work constructively to make the Maqua Conference better than it has 
been before ; and to do all in its power to show the true worth of Simmons, 
as well as to keep up the Standards of the college life. 

In November, Dr. Calkins gave a series of lectures that were along 
religious and ethical lines. Following out definitely one of the year's ob- 
jectives, were the December meeting on the World Court and the Series in 
February touching social and industrial problems. As usual, there were 
the Thanksgiving Baskets, the inspiring Christmas Vespers, under the 
auspices of the Freshman Commission. Several meetings also were de- 
voted to the cause of Maqua. 

If Y. W. has succeeded in any way, no matter how small, to fulfill its 
hopes and aims, the year may well be called a success.

The Ellen Richards Club was founded in 1920 for the purpose of 
stimulating interest in science and promoting good fellowship among mem- 
bers. It was felt that the name of the pioneer woman scientist of America 
would be a constant source of inspiration and always symbolize the ideals 
and aims of the organization. The broad range of her interests and ac- 
tivities which included pioneer work in the chemistry of sanitary water 
analysis, public health work as well as her association with the Home 
Economics movement for which she is perhaps more popularly known, 
offers ample opportunity in varied fields of activities for us who aspire to 
follow her. 

The membership includes Junior and Seniors in the School of Science 
and students from other schools majoring in Chemistry, Biology or Physics. 
The faculty of the science departments are included as honorary members. 

Our opening function in the fall was a picnic. On this occasion our 
chief delight lay in the discovery of a hitherto unsuspected talent for har- 
monizing songs on the part of members of the faculty. Our more formal 
meetings, at which interested outsiders are always welcome, have been ad- 
dressed by speakers who discussed their scientific researches and investi-

World," and may this ever be the inspiration for the perpetual growth of 
the Simmons Unitarian Club. We do not limit our membership to Uni- 
tarians alone ; we cordially welcome any of the girls who are interested in 
our informal gatherings and our practical discussions. We feel that in the 
macl pursuit for academic and technical knowledge, the deeper and more 
serious problems of life which inevitably confront youth are momentarialy 
forgotten. Therefore, to keep these problems before us, wiser and more 
experience! men and women address us at frequent intervals and lead us 
in our intimate group talks. Our purpose is to create and stimulate a 
warmer fellowship among our college friends, so that when we go out into 
the world we may carry with us this inspiration.

The regular weekly meeting of the Christian Science Society has 
been held every Thursday afternoon in Students' Room. These meetings 
take the form of testimonial meetings, and the graduates who have become 
associate members have joined with us in making them very inspiring to 
all who came. There have also been various informal social events, such 
as teas, and trips to various places of particular interest to the members. 
One lecture has been given by a member of the Board of Lectureship of The 
First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Massachusetts. 

The meetings are not confined to members of the Christian Science 
church alone and a cordial welcome is extended to faculty as well as stu- 
dents. The desire of the Society is to live up to its purpose of bringing to- 
gether the Christian Scientists of the college, and of increasing friendship 
with other college organizations.

Newman Club at Simmons is one of the many Catholic clubs active 
in all the non-Catholic colleges. It belongs to the National organization, 
the Federation of College Catholic Clubs. Its purpose is to promote re- 
ligious, intellectual and social activities among the students and colleges. 

The clubs around Boston are at Wellesley, Simmons, Technology, 
Smith, Boston University, Tufts, Emerson and Dartmouth. These clubs 
all co-operate in holding meetings, dances, communion breakfasts and 
other similar activities. 

The Simmons Newman Club is one of the strongest of these organi- 
zations and is looked upon as one of the most successful in carrying out the 
ideals and policies of its founder, Cardinal Newman.

The Menorah at Simmons College is composed of Jewish Students who 
feel the need of arousing greater consciousness of Judaism. Many well- 
known lecturers who talked on subjects related to Judaism were heard 
during the academic year. Joint meetings were held with the various 
Menorah organizations of Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 
and Boston University at which the students took part in interesting dis- 
cussions and debates. Menorah aids the student not only to gain clearer 
insight in religious subjects, but helps her to realize the worth of loyalty 
and love toward her fellow students and her College.

The best things, it is said, grow on you, like olives and poetry- Be 
that as it may, the interests of the different classes of Simmons are far 
from alike, and it is in consideration of this fact that we have noted their 
words in regard to the Review. What do they say of it? 
The Freshman : They were piled up on the hall table today, and anybody 

could take one. Imagine getting something free in college. Once 

in a while there is a story in it. 
The Sophomore : Corking piece in the Anvil about light rules. Guess I'll 

have to register a little kick of my own some day. 
The Junior: My roommate had an article in the Review. I always 

thought it was dreadfully high-brow, but if she gets something 

printed, I'll make a try of my own. 
The Senior: I like that piece of Dot's in the Revieiv this month. She 

had a real idea.

As announced in the editorial column of the first issue of the Neivs 
last October, the aim of the editor and staff this year was to make our col- 
lege weekly "more worth-while, more readable and more enjoyable." The 
great increase in the popularity of the paper and the rapidity with which 
subscriptions have increased, prove their efforts have not been in vain. 

The paper has faithfully reproduced the varied news of a busy col- 
lege life in respect to parties and dances ; the activities of various clubs 
and organizations; and class news. The "Book Review" column has at- 
tracted great interest by giving a weekly review of some one of the new 
books, and the "Periscope" has been a constant reminder of world-inter- 

May the laudable efforts of this year's staff for "pep," vitality and en- 
thusiasm tend to make the "Simmons News" one of the leading influences 
of the college life.

All year the members of the Board listed above have labored to as-

done her best to extract all your money and the advertising squad has 
worn out much shoe leather and the tempers of many advertising managers 
in their struggle to capture ads. In addition, we, speaking editorially, 
have lost all our friends by the sure method of asking them to type as well 
as to write for us. 

Now, however, it is done. We that have done it are making haste to 
withdraw from the public eye before the storm breaks.

Did you ever have someone innocently ask you whether Simmons is 
a cooking school, or a commercial college, or what State it is in? Did it 
make you feel "all het up," and call forth a fervent wish that the news- 
papers or somebody would tell the world that Simmons is a bonifide college 
and very much alive? 


1926 : : :: :: ORGANIZATIONS 

The Press Board has been organized expressly to correct this situa- 
tion — to get into the papers as much publicity for Simmons as they will 
take, and at the same time to keep out the frivolous, inconsequential ma- 
terial that adds nothing to the prestige of a college. 

This is a new enterprise at Simmons, and the work before the board 
is big and fascinating — the constant watch for news, the chase for your 
man (the photgorapher), a race downtown before the paper goes to print, 
and the article with its satisfying caption greeting your eager eyes the 
next morning. Much of our success has been due to Mr. Sutcliffe, who has 
secured for us the administration and faculty news, helped us over our 
mistakes, and has encouraged and advised about our plans for a stronger, 
broader organization. A word of appreciation is also due to Ye Crafts- 
man Studio for the generous and kindly aid freely extended to all Press 
Board members. 

There are broad fields ahead for the Press Board. The Boston papers 
are well-cared for. Through the Associated Press much material is 
relayed to papers in other parts of the country, but there is now need for 
an active body of reporters for out-of-town papers — the big State papers 
that cover the larger towns within their States. These papers pay very 
little for copy, but they can give to Simmons a publicity that is most 

The field of opportunities ahead is great and alluring, and we hope 
that this year will be but a phase in a long and useful career of service to 
our college.

Student Forum is a consolidation of the Civic League and Current 
Events of former years. It is the aim of this body to build up a spirit 
of intelligent concern about the national and international topics of the 
day. as well as Civic problems. In order to keep the student body informed 
on questions of science, politics and literature, popular speakers have been 
provided in the various dormitories throughout the year. 

This year the group fostered a drive to help out the Orphans in the 
Near East, an entirely new enterprise for Student Forum. 

The real support and interest which students have given to this body 
indicates that the Forum's place is secure among the Student Organiza-

The Household Economics Club is in its third year and is affiliated 
with both the National and New England Home Economics Clubs. 

Membership in our organization is made up of the Instructor and 
Special Students in the Household Economics School as well as Juniors 
and Seniors taking the course. 

The Juniors and Seniors have all been given a chance, during the 
year, to work on the several committees, which have been earning money 
for the club by analyzing candy and cakes, and serving teas for different 
organizations in the college. The money so earned is our only means of 
support since there are no club dues. 

Miss Blood's tea in the new Practice House was very delightful and 
gave us all an opportunity to see some of the things that the fortunate 
girls in the Practice House are doing. 

Now that we have Pilgrim House, we hope to have more of our 
meetings (social ones at least) over there.

Dramatics has added several new laurel leaves to its crown of glory 
this year. In the early fall, previous to the production of Sheridan's 
"The School for Scandal," Mr. Walter Prichard Eaton spoke on the comedy 
of manners. 

On the night of the Christmas dinner, members of the new honorary 
society of Dramatics, the "Mummers," entertained the gay diners with a 
presentation of the old Christmas story in pantomine. 

During the second term Mrs. Guy Currier of the Women's Council 
gave the "Mummers" a tea at her home on Commonwealth Avenue. 

The great advance of the Association, however, was the acquisition 


192 6 


of some new scenery, which created such a pleasant surprise when "The 
Romantic Age" was presented. 

February 13 proved a lucky evening for '28 because the cast of the 
Sophomore play received the prize in the three one-act-play contest. This 
does not mean that the Freshmen and Juniors deserved no praise. The 
freshmen interpreted their parts very well and the contrast between the 
bluff fathers and the remantic lovers was well brought out. 

Despite the lack of action in their play, the Juniors were very suc- 
cessful in sustaining the interest of the audience.

inclined. Each aspirant was then graded on her voice quality and facility 
in sight reading, and the new members were admitted on the basis of these 

There has been a rehearsal once a week throughout the year at which 
attendance is required. Here also the no-cut system reigns supreme, and 
those delinquents who cut more than once a term without sufficient reason, 
are automatically dropped. (Note: The vagaries of artistic temperament 
being no excuse.) 

Besides the annual concerts, the Glee Club furnishes the choir at 
Assembly, Christmas vespers, Baccaulaureate and Commencement.

Although Simmons still holds all its games either between the four 
walls of the gym or in the privacy of the well-known back yard, said 
association is a good illustration of the law of evolution. Just glance over 
the pages of the previous Mies if you want concrete proof of how rapidly 
this lively association has grown since ye goode olde days in 1910! 

Nowadays S. A. A. has acquired a spirit of thorough-going sports- 
manship which characterizes everything it does. The class hockey teams 
tore around the backyard all fall during practice with much pep and 
enthusiasm. Basketball is no longer the mild exercise it used to be 
when each player could remain fixed in her own little chalked space and 
watch the game like any other spectator. The modern B. B. team at 
Simmons tears in a mad gallop all over the gym in a manner similiar to 
any respectable masculine five. Furthermore, a new sport has been added 
to the list. In addition to hockey, basketball, track and life saving, S. A. A. 
now boasts an archery team. Finally, we point with pride to our twenty 
odd limping horseback riders.

Have you ever had a roommate or a kind friend taking Life Saving? 
Did she ever, in a friendly way, try to show you how to breathe rhythmi- 
cally? In other words, did you ever get resuscitated? If you haven't, 
offer yourself up on the altar the very next time you get a chance. You'll 
be in for the best reducing exercise you've found yet — and a good laugh, 
too — if you manage to survive it. 

Resuscitation isn't the only thing that those aspiring to be Senior 
Life Savers learn. They learn how to approach a drowning person, 
break every known death grip and then to carry him in. 

If you haven't been out for Life Saving as yet in your college career, 
come next year. If you are athletic, here's another one-third of a point 
towards your Simmons "S." Don't forget the meet every year in com- 
petition for that good-looking shield the Boston Humane Society gave us. 
1925 has won it for two years and they have now tactfully left the field 
of competition by graduating. That means that there's an equal chance 
for everybody.

Do you remember how we frolicked away one entire Saturday after- 
noon in the Refectory with no thought of anything except making a tre- 
mendous noise and gorging ourselves with ice cream, peanuts and lolly- 
pops? Each one of us surely has some vivid picture and memory of this 
burst of '26 into the college limelight. That stiff and solemn roommate 
did look such a sight in short socks and a waist-lined dress where a 
waist-line just shouldn't be! Most of us reverted to the ten-year type 
with pigtails and smeared lollypops, and some were rolled about in baby 
carriages. Yes — those were the good old Freshman days. Don't you 
wish we were frolicking again?

<6do£* Walk 

In the days of yore, when we were Sophs, Ghost Walk was still a 
grand old scrap! Terrible tales reached us of helpless Sophs who had 
been tied up in dark closets. Going to dinner became an exciting ad- 
venture for we expected that a clammy hand of some Junior would reach 
out from behind an ash barrel to capture us. 

Excitement ran high one evening and class history was made when a 
certain tall, dark and spindly Soph gave a famous bit of pithy advice to 
an excited Junior poised on the edge of Mrs. Dittmer's roof ! 

Then came the climax. At the appointed hour, we rushed madly out 
our back doors, and regardless of the portions of our best hose which we 
left dangling from various barbed wire fences, we bolted to the Cypress 
car barns and to victory!

In February, 1924, we made our first formal appearance as members 
of Simmons. There was breathless excitement in South Hall as we all 
got our rings and then went in to the Sophomore luncheon wearing the 
gleaming new emblems of our matriculation. There could not have been 
a more fitting entertainment for the occasion than our luncheon with its 
wealth of charming decoration, inspiring speeches, and delicious food. 
Then there was the "illuminated mystery" — those wise little owls blinking 
at us from the edge of the rose-lighted platter. That day we added one 
more delightful memory to our gallery of college treasures.

Mixed in with our pleasant reminiscences of May Day, such as the 
Strawberry short cake and the beauty of the King and Queen and all their 
handsome train, are certain other poignant memories. We ask, Hast 
forgotten the chilly morning breezes which chased one another through 
our flowing white cheese cloth robes? Dost also remember the sharp 
gravel walk and the clammy dew on the grass which our quivering feet 
had to endure while we draped ourselves among those three sickly pines 
from Penn the Florist, which were designated by the cast at "this drear

The most vivid and outstanding recol- 
lection we have of this first of our 
weddings was the picturesque beauty 
of the bride and groom. Libby Sweet 
was tall, dark and handsome — Marion 
was exquisite and blushing. In reality 
they were just as a society column says 
all such couples are. 


On this occasion '26 made some innovations. The farcical aspects 
of the ceremony were removed and the spirit of sister-class loyalty and 
palship were emphasied. The solemnity of the minister's quaking voice 
and the realistic and complete bridal party gave an impressive touch of 
seriousness. Just as the guests began to feel the full import of this second 
of life's "three great crises," Vi Marr and Cushy relieved the strain by 
their impersonation of Ye good Olde Hick relatives.

Senior Housewarming — pandemonium in North Hall basement — 
Apaches slithering around ; dirty little street urchins scrapping with every- 
one near them ; starving Armenians behaving in a most untarnished 
fashion ; messy, old tramps lolling about — everyone shrieking and yelling 
at the top of their lungs. An onlooker would have thought it the Psyco- 
pathic Hospital turned loose, not the dignified Seniors of the noble class 
of '26. 

When the noise had somewhat subsided, a pantomime entitled "Poky- 
hantus" was staged. The actors did their best. It was not their fault if 
the property men forgot their duties and the big chief had to hiss "sotto 
voce" backstage, "The bucket! Where's my bucket?" The appreciative 
audience quite enjoyed such little mishaps. 

After the play, we had several games and races. Lollipips were 
passed around to revive drooping spirits and urge the contestants on to 
victory. Then all the lights were put out and we sat in total darkness 
clutching each other, while Snap Morrill read us a most fearsome ghost 
story by the light of a flickering candle. 

Doughnuts and cider heralded our return from the world of spooks 
and we gorged blissfully, unaware of the sticky Fate awaiting us. A 
candy-pull completed the evening's entertainment, and very nearly com- 
pleted us!

junior iProm 

Since the imminence of graduation has imbued us with the desire to 
catch a few germs of that well-known Simmons disease — efficiency — we 
have subjected Junior Prom to a searching analysis. This long and care- 
ful study of the matter revealed the fact that this high festival could be 
divided into three stages. This we have done, as well as listed the elements 
of each stage as follows : 


Stage 1. (Beginning Jan. 1 and lasting until 6:30 P. M., May 15.) 

1 Initial hash party to discuss possible partners. 

2 3 or 4 selected according to these qualifications : 

1 dancing propensities 4 height 

2 looks 5 weight 

3 line 

3 Invitation sent to best of this approved group. 
4. Refusal received. 

5 Commotion and consultation. 

6 Another bid launched. 

7 More negative replies. 

8 Importation of the roommate's brother. 

9 Selection of prom dress. (This process also attended by much com- 

10 Final caucus to discuss dress, place of dinner and the virtues of part- 

Stage 2 (Participation) 

1 Joyful entrance into a completely disguised Refectory. 

2 Consumption of the delicacies of the menu as formal smiles and stiff 

postures gradually melt into genial hilarity. 

3 The triumphal entrance into the Somerset which is followed by a pro- 

cessional down the receiving line. 

4 Much gliding and shuffling about to the soft syncopations emitted by 

the orchestra. 

5 Senior serenade. 

6 The owl of '26 blinks his approval of the throng below him. 

7 Scattering to house parties here, there and everywhere. 

Stage 3 (Post Mortem) 

1 Accentuated Monday morning blues. 

2 Monday P. M. congregations at which the following items are 

thoroughly and heatedly discussed, pro and con : 

1 Everybody's man. 3 The details of the various house parties. 

2 Everybody's clothes.

^tubent #obernment iPartp = 1925 

The summer sun was setting as we met, all in our white, at the colon- 
nade, to enjoy for the last time a college party with the seniors of 1925. It 
was a solemn hour when those members of '25 conferred upon us the duties 
which they had performed so capably and worthily during the year, and 
also when President Lefavour, after his invaluable speech of advice and 
encouragement, announced that Miss Mesick was to be the full-fledged 
Dean of Simmons. 

At the lobster salad supper we all enjoyed the light-hearted inform- 
ality of eating on the lawn, and later we gathered again at the colonnade for 
the last step-singing with '25. As the seniors marched away that evening, 
under the rustling elms, we hoped that we might be as successful as they 
had been.

Dizzy Bit and Prettie Smooth Roommates and Seniors 

Notso Hot and Soapy Breeze Classmates of the Above 

Oughttabe Good A Member of Council 

Miss Clarabel Goodsport Matron of South Hall 

Miss Sycamore Dean 


Setting: The scene is laid in Suite No. 215 South Hall, this suite be- 
ing over the Colonnade and on the second floor. 

When the curtain rises, it is 4:30 P. M. Prettie Smooth and Dizzy 
Bit, the proprietors of said suite, are engaged in the customary afternoon 
occupation. Dizzy is eating a brownie and Prettie is writing letters, either 
to her father or her friends at Dartmouth, depending on the state of her 

A knock is heard on the door and Soapy Breeze breezes in waving a 
piece of paper. 

Soapy Breeze : Listen to this, ladies. Gather round while I read you 
the latest idiosyncrasy of Student Government. 

Dizzy : Don't tell me they have banned second balcony seats at the) 

Soapy: No, much worse. Listen. (Mounting a chair, Soapy reads 
in a loud and mock-heroine voice as follows : ) 

Inasmuch as we have learned, through the irresistible channel of ru- 
mor, that someone heard that a friend of hers saw a Harvard student eat- 
ing a life saver at a recent Union party, and without stating the sinister 
implications of such an indiscreet action, we hereby decree that no Sim- 
mons student shall endanger the reputation of the college by being seen at 
any Harvard festivity henceforth and forever more. 

(This step was taken only after serious deliberation, namely: two 
caucuses and three conventions.) 

Prettie: So that's why there were three Judicial Board meetings 
last week ! 


1926 :: :: :: MICROCHAOS 

Dizzie: Well, I'm relieved. I knew we must be on the eve of some 
great calamity when we got a cut in Shorthand-Typewriting last Wednes- 

Enter Notso Hot 

Notso Hot: What do you think of the new ban on Harvard? Do 
you suppose it includes football games and the Glee Club Concerts? 

Dizzie : Probably, and very likely all the debates as well. 

Soapy: What makes this all the more interesting is the big party, 
over at the Union tonight. 

Pretty : Wonder if anyone will have the nerve to go ! 

(Cowbell rings. Falsetto voice from below) : "Miss Hot, telephone." 

Notso: Oh, all right! (Exit Notso on the run.) 

Dizzie : She gives me a pain ! All she does is rave about her men. 
Lucky for Apollo he didn't live in these days of great competition. 

Prettie : I agree with you. She certainly can make mountains out 
of molehills ! 

Soapy: I never got such a shock as when I saw that Bill Charleston 
she's been raving about for the past month ! 

Enter Notso 

Notso : I'm all agog ! That was Bill Charleston and I'm going to the 
theatre with him tonight. 

Girls : Where ? 

Notso: The Copley. 

Soapy: Cute enough! You go out all the time, old dear! Is Bill 
that good-looking boy I saw you with last Friday? 

Notso : Yes. 

Soapy : Bet he goes around with a snappy crowd. Why don't you 
get him to drag over some of his friends some night? 

Notso: Perhaps. Needs must go get into the glad rags. (Exit 

Dizzie: Notso certainly has improved since Freshman year. It did 
her good to diet. She's almost down to normal now. 

Prettie: Just what do men see in her, though? I don't think her 
beauty is absolutely startling. 

Soapy: Oh, well- — I can use my imagination ! (Cowbell rings again. 
Once more the falsetto voice wavers forth) : "Miss Fonda Food?" 

Fonda Food: What is it? 

(Voice from below) : Veal loaf, creamed corn, mashed potatoes and 


THE MICROCOSM :: :: :: 1926 

Fonda Food: Thanks. Guess I'll eat out tonight! 

(Again the cowbell. Soapy rushes out). Here come the pickles! 
What is it? 

(Quavering voice) : Miss Oughttabe Good, telephone! 

Dizzie: There goes one cause of this new ban. It probably doesn't 
worry her, though. All her men go to B. U. 

Prettie: Personally, I don't see where she gets her sanctimonious 
air. As I remember, she wasn't so very angelic last year! 

Soapy: Must needs find out where she's stepping. (Goes into hall 
and bellows) : Oughttabe, where you going? 

Oughttabe: To symphony! 

Soapy : Symphony it is ! Well, guess I'll run up to the corner with 
my laundry. Be back in five minutes if I get any phone calls. (Exit 

(Dizzie and Prettie are now left alone.) 

Prettie : Dizzie, this is a sad catastrophe. Why on earth should 
Student Government get a conscience stroke just now? I want to go to 
that Union party tonight. 

Dizzie : So do I ! Furthermore, I'm going. 

Prettie: Noble sentiment ! But just how do you think we can work 
it? Neither one of us can get any more specials this week and I refuse to 
come home at 12 :00. 

Dizzie: This is a problem. Just give me time. 

Prettie: An inspiration! (Gets up and rushes to window over 
colonnade.) Come here! We can swipe the ladder out of the cellar after 
Kelly falls asleep over the radio and then we can climb in this way. 

Dizzie: Bright girl! Too bad you couldn't give Academy a little 


End of Scene I 


(Same as Scene I except that it is 3 :00 A. M. A grating noise is heard 
on the colonnade, then whispers.) 

Feminine Voice: Hold the ladder steady, Joe. 

Masculine Voice: All right, I've got it. For heaven's sake don't 
lose your balance! (Steps on top of the colonnade.) 

Masculine Voice (From below) : Next! 

(Another person steps on colonnade.) 


1926 •:: :: :: MICROCHAOS 

Feminine Voice: We're all right. Thanks. Better put the ladder 
over by the men's dorm. Had an awfully good time. 

Masculine Voice: Call you up the first of the week. Good-night. 
(Window opens cautiously and Dizzie Bit and Prettie Smooth enter the 
room and get undressed.) 

Dizzie Bit: Have a good time, Prettie? 

Prettie: Yes, ma'am. Did you see our friend Oughttabe? She 
looked so upset when she saw me that I pretended not to see her. 

(Voice from below. Dizzie and Prettie go to the window and look 

Dizzie : Ye gods ! It's Oughttabe ! Better duck into bed quick. 

(They tumble into bed and pretend sleep. Squeaks as before, then 
Oughttabe's voice) : Thanks, Jack. Better put that ladder back where 
we found it. Here's hoping I don't wake up Prettie and Dizzie. It was 
darned lucky for me they didn't see me at the Union. Good night. 

Male Voice: Good night. I'll call you up tomorrow to see if all's 

(Just as Oughttabe steps on Dizzie's bed Dizzie sits up.) Well, 
Oughttabe! What's this? 

(Loud crash outside. Oughttabe looks out) : Heavens, he dropped 
the ladder! (Shrieks from the occupant of the room on the ground floor.) 

Dizzie : My gosh ! He woke up Lucy Groundfloor ! 

Prettie: Here comes Miss Goodsport! Duck into that closet, Ought- 
tabe. If she catches you here, you're done for! (Oughttabe scrambles 
into the closet, the others duck into bed. ) 

(Enter Miss Goodsport who looks around anxiously.) 

Dizzie (sleepily) : What's the matter? 

Miss Goodsport: Nothing. Good night girls. (Exit.) 

(Oughttabe comes out of the closet and sinks down on the bed.) Ye 
gods ! What an escape ! 

Prettie : You better get upstairs, Oughttabe. Remember what Miss 
Goodsport did last time we had a midnight scare. 

Dizzie: Wait a minute. You can't go parading around the halls in 
your evening dress. Put my kimona on over it. 

Oughttabe: Thanks. Wish me luck. (Exit in haste.) 

(Prettie and Dizzie climb back into bed.) 

Dizzie : I hope she's safe. Well, wake me up in the A. M. for break- 
fast. But if you dare haul me out before 7:55 I'll kill you. 'Night! 

Prettie : 'Night. 

(Silence, then the clump, clump, clump of the night watchman's foot- 
steps is heard as he comes up the stairs) 


THE MICROCOSM :: :: :: 1926 


(Same as before. It is 4 :00 P. M. of the following day. 
Dizzie Bit and Prettie Smooth are talking to Notso Hot 
and Soapy Breeze about the scare of the night before.) 

Notso : Well, I've been tracking this mystery all day and I can't 
find any explanation which will account for all the details of last night's 

Soapy : I've been thinking too and I'm sure I have the true dope. 

All : Spill it, Soapy, quick. 

Dizzie: I'm awfully intrigued about the whole thing, aren't you 

Prettie : Yes, especially since it happened outside our window. 

Soapy : I'm sure there was a man hiding in the trunk room all day 
who was planning to steal fur coats. I imagine that he carried a trunk 
upstairs to put them in, and while he was in Dizzie's room, he got scared 
and jumped off the colonnade. 

Notso : But there wasn't any trunk found, and anyway, wouldn't 
he have hurt himself? I think that Miss Sycamore's theory is the best 
one. She thinks that some maniac escaped from the Psychopathic, walked 
in there and was prowling around the hall when he saw Eliza Woodlock 
coming along in those red pajamas. That reminded him that he was 
Nero and that Rome was burning. He dashed out on the colonnade and 
while he was dancing a jig, he fell off! 

Chorus : You forgot that the Psychopathic told Miss Sycamore when 
she phoned them that they didn't have any Neroes. 

Soapy: I've just had another idea, which you may like better. It's 
really very simple. It all happened at about the time the night watchman 
goes his rounds, didn't it? 

Notso : Yes. 

Soapy : All right. He's awfully bashful and very considerate. Now 
suppose he should hear a girl coming down the hall behind him and at 
the same time see another one coming toward him. He wouldn't like to 
embarrass either one, would he? 

Chorus (Listening intently) : No, go on! 

Soapy : Why wouldn't he dive into Dizzie's room, and when he saw 
her there, get so scared that he jumped off the colonnade? 

Prettie and Dizzie : Bright idea, Soapy. Why don't you rush down 
and tell Miss Goodsport? 

Soapy: That's an idea! Come on Notso. I'll need support. (Ex- 


1926 :: :: :: MICROCHAOS 

Dizzie: All seems to be well so far. I hope Miss Goodsport clings 
to that last idea of Soapy's. 

Prettie: That's all right, as long as she forgets to ask the night 
watchman about it. 

Dizzie: Oh well, what's the use of worrying. Let's think no more 
of it. 

{Enter Oughttabe) 

Prettie: Hello, Oughttabe, why so sad? Has anyone found out? 

Oughttabe: (After closing door carefully) Girls, I've come to the 
conclusion that we ought to report ourselves about last night. I feel that 
while I had a momentary weakness last night, still I am fairly virtuous 
on the whole. I suppose I can't expect anyone else to develop the neces- 
sary noble attitude toward Student Government if I don't set them an 
example. I'm going to report myself and then resign my office. 

Prettie: Oughttabe! Don't be foolish ! Who could take your place? 
You're by far the best one on Council. It wouldn't be safe to let anyone 
else get a chance at it. 

Oughttabe: Don't argue with me, girls. I'm determined to do it. 
The reason I'm telling you is that I think you ought to report yourselves 

Dizzie : What an idea ! We aren't on Council ! I thought we had 
a right to misbehave. Personally, I think my presence gave a higher 
tone to that party than it would have had otherwise. Report myself for 
reforming Harvard? Don't be silly! 

Oughttabe : I'm sorry, but if you won't report yourselves, I'm 
afraid I shall have to. Noblesse oblige! 

Prettie: That's what comes of the higher education! Why oh why 
did you take "Soc" Oughttabe? 

Oughttabe: That's beside the point. Besides, "Soc's" required. 
Furthermore, I've been in to see the Dean already ! 

Dizzie and Prettie: (In chorus) You have! 

Oughttabe : Yes, I have. She was busy though. She and Miss 
Clarabel Goodsport were discussing the escaped maniac theory. 

Dizzie: May I borrow some money for train fare, Prettie? 

Prettie : I guess so. I suppose we might as well go out in a blaze of 
glory and do our bit for Student Government. We'll give a personal 
demonstration of how the Honor System should work. You can go up to 
see the Dean tomorrow, Dizzie, and tell her that you have concluded that 
despite your love for me you feel you owe a greater loyalty to your college 
and that you therefore find it your painful duty to report me. Then I'll 
go up the next hour with an ethereal expression of martyrdom on my 
noble countenance and do the same. 


THE MICROCOSM :: :: :: 1926 

Dizzie: (Sadly) In the words of the poet, Prettie, "Et tu Brute!" 
What chance has a poor criminal like me against two such reformed 
rascals ? 

(Loud gong rings. Voice of Miss Goodsport shouting.) 

Dean's meeting at once in the living room. 



(Five minutes later. All South Hall is seated in a 
semi-circle facing Miss Sycamore, who is standing by 
the piano. Miss Goodsport is nearby.) 

Miss Sycamore (Solemnly and slowly) : Students, I have called 
this meeting to talk to you on a very serious subject. I believe that you 
all realize to what I refer. I want to discuss the unmentionable scandal 
of last night. I say scandal intentionally and I feel that all right-minded 
students will agree with me that it is extremely alarming to be awakened 
in the dead of night by a man jumping off the colonnade. 

We have discovered what happened, thanks to the vigilance of Miss 
Goodsport. (Prettie, Dizzie and Oughttabe have queer feelings in their 
anatomical centers.) This is the truth of the matter. A thief was climb- 
ing up the colonnade when his foot slipped and he and the ladder crashed 
to the ground. (The aforementioned sensation leaves the persons of Diz- 
zie, Prettie and Oughttabe who now radiate good cheer and understand- 

That in itself is serious enough. What makes the incident more 
regrettable, however, is the fact that it was your fault. This affair is 
just another case, like the thumb tacks rule, where the administration 
must step in and bear the responsibility of your welfare. 

The rule I refer to is this : You have all been repeatedly told to 
open your window from the top only so that people crawling in would be 
heard more easily. 

Miss Goodsport reports that last night two girls failed to do so. This 
non-observance of the rules might have caused serious damage to the 
reputation of the college. Had the man gotten in, we might have needed 
the police to help Kelly extract him. That would have meant undesirable 

What parents then would have been willing to send their daughter to 
a college where the authorities were lax enough to allow girls to open 
their windows from the bottom? Please think this matter over seriously, 
girls. This is all. You may go now. (Exeunt.) By the way, Miss 
Good, didn't you have something important to tell me? 

Oughttabe : No — oh, yes ! I remember now. Will you please go 
to the Senior-Faculty Party with me?

Dr. Gay (pausing in the midst of the roll-call) : "By the way, Miss 
Clark, have you ever passed in that paper due about five weeks ago?" 
Miss Clark (firmly) : "No." 
Dr. Gay (meekly) : "Well, er— er." 

Dr. Harley (apologetically) : "Would you object strenuously if I 
gave you a quiz next Thursday?" 
Class (vociferously) : "Yes." 

Dr. Goodell (blushing deeply) : "I wonder if you and Miss Zero 
would please not whisper so loudly, Miss Blank. The rest of the class 
can't hear me." 

Student : "Dr. Harris, do we have to pass our report slips in now 
or the day of the exam?" 

Voice of Student (from behind the distilling apparatus) : "The day 
of the exam, of course." 

Dr. Harris (mildly) : "Is that the voice of authority I hear?"

Mic Board met in a serious mood 

(The outer world said with feet unstable) 

Plotted and planned and pounded on the table, 

Pounded on the table, 

Beat their empty heads till their genius brewed, 

Hard as they were able 

Boom, Boom, Boom. 

The classroom mutterings grew and grew. 

Boomlay, boomlay, boomlay, boom! 

We came to a decision, then we had a vision 

So our heads weren't turned by their reveling derision 

Then we saw the mic book, complete in white and black 

Ready for ye classmates in a blue and golden stack. 

Then around the sales-desk 

A thousand cries 

As ye weary classmates drowned their sighs 

For the Mies were ready when the spring came along 

And not brought by mailmen when summer was gone. 

And "Mic" screamed the skeptics and the cynics in a crowd. 

"Mic" screamed our worried-eyed, dignified guides, 

"Where is the cause of all this battle? 

"Scurry through the write-ups, 

"Hunt for the slams !"

Boomlay boomlay boomlay boom.

From the minds of the writers 

To our classmates dear.
